Supporting companies’ digital strategies with cloud-native technology

Stibo Systems KK (head office: Aarhus, Denmark; Japan office: Chuo-ku, Tokyo, Representative Director: Hiroyuki Kudo; “Stibo Systems”) and Data Research Institute (head office: Chuo-ku, Tokyo, President: Kosei Sato; “Data Research Institute”) are strengthening their collaborative relationship with the One Global Partner Program (OGPP), a global partnership certification initiative recently launched by Stibo Systems. As a certified partner under OGPP, Data Research Institute will become an integral part of consulting services for Stibo Systems – the global leader in cloud-native multidomain master data management (MDM) – MDM solutions, as both companies work together to develop a business strategy to combat the “2025 Digital Cliff” in Japan. The partnership will provide extensive, long-term support to companies’ data management strategies through the design, development and operation of a master data platform, which will become the foundation for Japanese companies accelerating their digital transformation.

In recent years, more than 80% of Stibo Systems’ new clients have chosen to implement MDM as a SaaS model. Considering this, OGPP gives Data Research Institute the tools to provide comprehensive support for developing the structures, systems and processes needed for managing master data, as well as implementing MDM and creating roadmaps and data governance regulations, leveraging the flexibility and scalability of multidomain MDM SaaS solutions provided by Stibo Systems.


“In the midst of the major trend of digital transformation, utilizing data generated on a global scale – and the data management needed to realize this – has become essential for companies,” explained Kosei Sato, President of Data Research Institute. “While data compliance is drawing attention in society, there are still many companies facing challenges from the actual approach needed for master data management. This is due to the immense time, labor and cost required to build the framework required for consolidation and management of master data, which is in stark contrast to the expectations and speed of achieving digital transformation.”

Data Research Institute has many years of experience providing consulting services based on the methodology developed through the institute’s expertise in designing and standardizing business data, to ensure the effective utilization and enhancement of the value of data as a business asset.

“As a certified OGPP partner, we have built a system to quickly support the provision of Stibo Systems’ multidomain MDM SaaS platform,” Sato said. “The Data Research Institute is certain this will provide a major driving force for customers seeking to shift to digital business.”

“Many company managers have a keen interest in implementing strategic data management practices today, and they are seeking the best approach to realize it with the outcome and speed required by their companies,” said Stibo Systems KK Representative Director, Hiroyuki Kudo. “Data Research Institute and Stibo Systems have collaborated for many years, specifically in the field of data management, and Data Research Institute’s certification as an OGPP partner will serve to further strengthen our working relationship. Our combined knowhow and technologies mean we can better assist our customers develop their strategies through providing a more comprehensive level of support over the long term. Our partnership will fast-track essential and strategic data management practices in Japan and help develop a new vision in the field.”

Both companies will regularly hold master data integration, code standardization and MDM seminars and focus on providing valuable information about the importance of master data management in the digital transformation era and the methods for implementing these projects.
